Help improve Google Translate
You can help make our translations better, and even add new languages, as part of the Google Translate Community.
Join the Google Translate Community
- Go to the Google Translate Community.
- Sign in with your Google Account.
After you’ve joined, when you visit, you could see the option to translate or validate words, phrases or sentences in your languages.
When you click Translate, Google Translate shows you words or phrases to translate into your language.
Tips for translating
Translate the word or phrase the same way that you’d speak or write it. Correct any grammar errors. For example, if the translation says 'how old is you', translate it as 'how old are you'.
Use the same:
- Tone, such as formal or informal
- Idioms and slang
If you’re missing important information, such as the subject’s gender or relationship to you, translate it the way you think it should be written.
Note: We might show your contributions to other users (without identifying you), so don’t include anything private or personal.
When you click Validate, Google Translate shows you several translations of a word or phrase into your language. Mark which ones are right and wrong.
Help add new languages
You help us add new languages to Google Translate quickly by translating and validating.
We pay special attention to written languages that native speakers can help us translate and that are used a lot on the web.
